Coach Focus: The tempo squat that starts each set will help curb athlete egos and ensure that the
barbell stays in the moderate-weight-range across your athlete’s sets. As your athletes build in
weight, ensure that the tempo cadence does not change to allow for more weight on the bar. One
phrase Coach Sherb likes to use to help athlete understand “why” we ask for moderate weights and a
high adherence to points of performance is because “skill unlocks your strength”. Move better, not

- Clean and Jerk: athletes should be able to perform touch and go reps at their
barbell weight, but at a minimum, weight must allow for fast singles.
- Lunges: Should not exceed :30 to complete the 10 steps. Air Squats can be used a
substitute if single leg work does not allow for full ROM.
Coach Focus: Metcon should allow athletes to move at faster-than-EMOM pace. Lunges are unweighted.
Barbell should go touch and go with
other athletes performing fast singles.
